Balloon rides are one of our most popular experiences. It is a magical way to fly, and you are sure to experience something special while you are drifting in silence across the sky steered only by the wind and air currents. Itís a group activity and lasts several hours. Apart from magical silence of early mornings and breathtaking pictures of nature that is waking up, regular sightings of vast selection of birds and other wildlife are the highlights of this unforgettable experience. This is experience for one person only.

The experience begins when you meet your crew at 05h30 AM (launch time will slightly differ depending on the season), just as the sun is rising at the launch site. Hot tea and coffee are served whilst you watch the crew prepare the huge colorful balloons for flight in the calm, stable morning air. Just before the passengers are invited to climb aboard the pilot gives them a short safety briefing prior to take off. The actual flight will last approximately 1 hour. Once landed you will enjoy a glass of sparkling wine followed by a full English breakfast back at the base. You will also receive a certificate to commemorate your balloon flight.
Ballooning is suitable for anyone between 7 and 70, as long as they are nimble, able to jump unassisted from a height of 60cm and stand for the duration of the flight (approx. one hour). Children are to be accompanied by an adult. You will need to supply us with how much you weigh. Not suitable for pregnant women.
Ballooning is a very weather dependent. In the event of poor weather, the operator will contact you the night before the flight or very early on the morning of the flight to arrange an alternative date.
The total experience lasts four to five hours, including the flight of about one hour. Transport time is additional to this.
This is an experience for one person only, but it is likely to be shared since there is minimum participant requirement for the flight to take place. Balloon baskets accommodate from 8 to 18 passengers.
Clothing should be warm enough for the chilly early morning air, but it should also be layered to 'peel' off as the sun, excitement and champagne warm you up. 'Country' shoes or sneakers are recommended.
Balloon flights go up every day of the year, depending on the weather conditions. Bookings should be made 3 - 4 weeks in advance.
The experience includes in-flight or landing champagne, transfer back to the country base where a farm-style, champagne breakfast is served. Bring your camera, extra film or extra video batteries - the scenery is spectacular!
